Will T. Massey — “Bonus Tracks” 2015-2016

One of the fantastic features of CD re-issues of older albums has been the inclusion of “bonus tracks.” Be they alternate takes of already unreleased songs or tracks left unreleased for whatever reason, getting these felt a bit like an extra Christmas.

Will T. Massey wrote and performed dozens, maybe even hundreds, of songs that were never “released” in any conventional sense. From his earliest independent cassette releases to the eponymous MCA release of 1991 to a couple of solo acoustic CDs and more recent studio releases, Will certainly shared a prolific set of recorded material. Still, like the proverbial iceberg, there has always been much, much more beneath the surface in terms of “unreleased” material.

Finding more songs and recordings by Will always feels like discovering a buried treasure chest. You’re never quite sure what might be in there, but you know it’s well worth examining. With that in mind, here’s a handful of songs Will self-released via YouTube and Soundcloud (circa 2015-2016).
